Top New Zealand Chardonnay 2012

4. Escarpment Chardonnay Martinborough (2010)

« Prev Next » 4 of 8
The nose here is quite savory, starting off with some gentle toast notes and a fine edge of fresh nuttiness reminding me of pignoli. There’s some aromatic butcher’s wax and a hint of pollen that accents the dry, soft peachy fruit on the nose. This is very light on the palate, showing an early bit of nuttiness and a stony texture under the cut orchard pie fruits. This is youthful, almost a bit mean, but it’s remarkably clear and pure with a long, lemon pith/lemon oil note on the chalky, almost dry woody finish. I could drink this all night. 92pts
